FORMALISMS - Modernist inline display type

Rigid square-based inlined modernist display style with incised (fake-) 3D effect, mimicing a quirky and non-logical take on twisted geometric form and sometimes folded appearance.

Some characters, but mainly symbols still need slight improvements, some are still missing as well.

The bi-linear stroke was incised at certain specific positions and had one or more (cross-)intersecting line segment included that connect the two colinear strokes. This is creating 2 additional extra geometric hyper-planes, and allows the option of including the illusion of looking at three-dimensional geometric objects.

But the way this is implemented into the design in fact obeys no relationship to any actual fundamental propeties and isn't necessarily a correct three-dimensional form, nor fully or faithfuly folded.

The glyphs also have somewhat of a monogram logo style quality

Hope you like it

Very nice, and congrats on the very deserved TP!

I wonder if the digonal incisions could have been a bit wider or, on the contrary, left implied, since they tend to disappear at smaller sizes.

I'm with riccard0 about the incisions. Cool font. Congrats on the TP, pal!

@Rob: Wow, thanks for the TP

@riccard0 & elmoyenique: I'm aware about this, but is was by choice, it's a display font not really meant for smaller sizes.. ;-)

Thanks nonetheless pals!
